boehner say we're done. we solved the problem of baselines that are flux waiting every two years, we know where we are on the revenue side, and now all the fights need to come on spending, and conservatives are in a good position to talk bow size of government and cutting back a lot of the pelosi, reid, and obama spending binge. neil: you know, i look at the numbers, and, jonas, there's just no way you can get there alone on taxes, that hark to the fact that the the "wall street journal" had tax all their money, $1.3 trillion, does not address the deficit just this year. so you have to get more money from other folks; right? >> no question taxes did not go up enough to settle the budget, the hole of the major spending cuts. obama talks about the clinton years, but taxes were higher for lower income, families, child credits were not there, and lower rates. what's the problem is it did not apply to people and added layers of complexity to an already ridiculously complex tax code. as an investment advisers you have to deal with rates, created new ones nowings baa there's an additional 3.6, a

. he kind of cleaned john boehner squat in terms of taxes and revenues. it was all tax increases. $15 million in spending cuts. republicans have to get their acts together to negotiate better on the debt ceiling and other things. neil: what is the overture on the republican party? saying that they are going to push for a three-month extension? >> sure, what i read in it was from a pr standpoint in saying that gets all is a bad idea and will hurt the economy. and for economy a year and a half ago. republicans are saying that maybe it's a smart move in the sense that they want to say enough of this pr stunt. let's take the falls off the table but let's get to the real essence of spending cuts. the president is going to keep coming back. but it's more revenue. but it's more tax increases. we knew that in the campaign. neil: there is this paraphrase between the rich and the poor that you alluded to. maybe he has not done this. >> i don't think he is done on more tax increases. neil: more deductions? >> deductions and perhaps more rate hikes. this was alluded to during the fiscal cliff tal

than spending cuts. could explain the president comment to john boehner that we don't have a spending problem. black caucus said we don't have entitlement problem. leave entitlements alone. nancy pelosi says we still have a revenue problem. don't leave the tax hikes alone. what is amazing these guys don't address a problem. this weekend we get ready to essentially coronate a president, there is no evidence anywhere among anyone in washington they even see a problem. nowhere in any of the inaugural events is so much as passing bought of spending period. more like a four-day spending palooza, celebrates wonder of government and those that benefit from the government the woman who has a job thanks to the auto rescue. the dad's whose family is protecting thanks to the health care law. i think you get the point. austerity isn't the point. more government is. this inaugural weekend is all about a blueprint for revving it up. the white house says it is low-keying the inaugural festivities because of economy, somehow cutting yourself down to two presidential balls doesn't exactly strike me as

to bring us together. >> house speaker john boehner is meeting with the house republican conference right now. according to a source in the room boehner is calling for the republican party to present a budget that balances the federal budget in 10 years. given where democrats and republicans have been on that issue, republicans against any type of increases in taxes you can imagine all that would come through spending cuts and not be all that acceptable to democrats on capitol hill. so recall tore there will be a vote in the house to extend the debt ceiling until may 19th. that is contingent both houses of congress passing a budget. something that senate majority leader harry reid said is a big step forward for republicans. they're not calling for any spending decreases in this debt ceiling increase. the white house put out a statement said it would not oppose a short-term debt deal though neither getting real specific whether or not they would actually agree to what the house is hoping to pass tomorrow. back to you. david: rich, reading through that, frankly didn't take too long to read
